Tuvalu minister standing in water: We're sinking


The foreign minister of Tuvalu stood knee-deep in seawater on the shores of his small Pacific island nation and said he "will not give up" as leaders gather in Glasgow over the climate crisis. With his podium in the sea, trousers rolled up, Simon Kofe said rising sea levels are an "existential threat" to Tuvalu and surrounding islands.
